and us plain make a boeing admits for the first time there's a system failure was a factor in the recent crash that claimed the lives of one hundred fifty seven people. it's midday here in moscow and you're watching all t. international live with me welcome to the program all eyes are on the ecuadorian embassy in london amid suggestions that wiki leaks founder julian assange will be expelled from the compound he's been holed up inside since being granted asylum six years ago well to discuss this further i'm joined by. with the details how rights. why is the people thinking at this very moment might suddenly be expelled well the
5:02 am
just before i answer your question i believe we can show you live pictures from outside the ecuadorian embassy because in the last thirty minutes or so it wasn't all that quiet if you can just see that. door which is the entrance to that embassy i believe activists have come up with something in just a few seconds ago there was a truck with a massive poster with a hash tag free speech and julian as songes mouth on that big poster was covered with an american flag as we also saw police arrive for now it's not clear whether somehow they made this truck move away from it but it's all that call many more as you've said before that we had seen you in supporters arrive at the ecuadorian embassy overnight well just again to answer your question why it's being thought right now that julian assange could be expelled from it the supporters of
5:03 am
the whistleblower were put in panic mode by a tweet from we keep leaks again it was posted overnight late on thursday night and suggested that this kind of expulsion can happen within hours or days i can tell you that julian is songe is allowed to stay at the ecuadorian embassy only under a certain set of strict rules that were set for the whistleblower after the change of government in ecuador and it is feared right now that violations of these rules could be used as the official pretext for joining this. being thrown out of the embassy but the folks at least believe that the real reason for those could be the so-called i and a papers off shore scandal which are alleging that the president of ecuador lenin maranoa could be benefiting from an offshore account in
5:04 am
panama the last. series of documents was released in february and it included e-mails and phone calls that link the ecuadorian leader. with a number of corruption and money laundering scandals and there you have it earlier this week we heard from the president that he was not happy by how with how sorry julian assad was a biding by these rules he said he was violating them and apparently he's absolutely not happy with the revelations that he's come up with. too many times mr sanchez violates the cream and we reach with him and his attorney he can freely talk he can freely express himself pretty cannot lie private accounts of phone we keep leaks and gauges in espionage and hacking snooping on phones even getting photos of my bedroom what i eat and how my wife and daughters and friends
5:05 am
dawns you can say is not happy have we heard anything from at quintal india no confirmation from the officials there we have a specific statement saying that no decision on the expulsion of the whistleblower has been made ecuador's foreign ministry besides this released a statement that they are not ready to comment on rumors theories or conjectures that don't have any documented backing. let's speculate for a moment what will happen if assad is kicked out there's nothing new about these this kind of because ever since julian assad failed asylum at the ecuadorian embassy. it was almost clear that the ultimate test a nation for the whistleblower what to be the united states where we can leaks is being prosecuted for releasing all these documents i mean basically that's what
5:06 am
they became famous for releasing classified data on some of the very nasty things that allegedly. that we've seen during the afghan war from the u.s. military. activity by the cia and so on and so forth and that's why the entire western world is pretty much after julian assange and we've spoken to the people to the supporters of the whistleblower who began setting up some sort of protest camp outside the ecuadorian embassy and once again they're talking about this kind of trap that julian assange has fallen into with his solemn at the embassy. from a central huge. relief for julian with the challenge of presidency and door and it seems that mr murray no one suspect would be calling the united states again. and
5:07 am
the garment incredibly toxic and so the building hoping he'll billion he's being blamed for having leaked having exposed the scandal surrounding marina at the moment that the world should know he does not have access to any form of communication and he is no longer in charge if we should meet how he could possibly do that we don't know this is just a whole sham and the whole scam. so we will be watching out for anything that's happening outside the diplomatic compound. so as you can see the police were already there the activists have come up with something as well it is getting quite tense and will bring you up today i'm sure you will thank you very much for the update there thank you. commenting on the latest revelations from ecuador and president rafael correa said there's plenty of evidence of marina's
5:08 am
guilt. this is a huge case one of the most. serious corruption case this. history. proves we have a lot of proof it really. is we have been secret out the reason. we have this is we know or really. know a lot of. families for instance the burmans in the interim and ghost or in. the firm you. really mean. things but when these account will be organ we will be able to see where does the money go on the. most. there is no choice. in the audience he described
5:09 am
he has seen this and she saw our current or a constitution. will be decided into the next day or order and they go remember most probably the most but there is right that we will see what they were measuring it will do for. us congress has passed a bill against american involvement in saudi arabia as one yemen both chambers in the so-called war powers act to stop the us from supporting riyadh without congressional approval the motion has had to type some small efforts to pocket as fine print shit on a few lines of text that can ruin you financially allow facebook to know more about you than your family and friends ever will and keep the u.s. sponsoring a war that has led to the world's worst humanitarian crisis the us has passed a resolution to stop washington support for the saudi led campaign in yemen for a very long time many have been desperately calling for this while the war hawks in
5:10 am
congress have been equally desperate to prevent it from passing and the means that they've resorted to to derail any such initiatives are absolutely spectacular. when house democrats put forward a resolution like this last time republicans added an amendment to it which condemned anti semitism this tragedy is merely one part of an upset in development that is a merged in recent years a resurgence of anti-semitism now what does anti semitism have to do with the war in yemen you are ask nothing but follow the hands the resolution passed in the house but was eventually refused to vote in the senate because it contained a bit irrelevant to the main subject yemen and that bit was yes the anti semitism amendment which house democrats didn't have the guts to argue to get rid of out of
5:11 am
fear as to sounds in a phobic and it's not the only time when yemen's fate was decided by the small print. last year donald trump signed into law a bill which he described like this through fires floods and freezing weather we will always stand with the american farmers the farm bill doubles the amount of farmers that they can burrow to expand and improve their farms you sure sounded pleased in this clip yet i have my suspicion that concerns for american farmers have little to do with it because this bill appeared on his table with an attachment blocking the vote on yemen and an identical thing happened a month before that. the house rules committee voted to advance the manage our wolves act that lifted the ban on hunting gray wolves and yes blocked a vote on the u.s. involvement in the yemeni war which is an absolute outrage if you ask me because
5:12 am
look in these big papi how can you allow hunting a creature as beautiful as that but in all seriousness though congress finally passing the human bill without any cabinets is a major milestone indeed but it is said to appear on donald trump's table next and just take a wild guess what's going to happen if you truly care about your many lives you'd support the saudi led effort to prevent yemen from turning into a puppet state of the corrupt british islamic republic of iran so yeah when you fix all the farmer's misery and manage all your wolves you always have mr president to rely on riyadh intervene in am an intern to fifteen after the procyon event president was asked if i had the rebels the bill passed by congress has yet to be approved by donald trump he may veto that decision flounders the head of international action center doesn't think trump will sign. the resolution will very
5:13 am
much likely go back again they'll be other votes and other efforts president trump has absolutely tied himself to the feudal monarchy. and to holland and solomon so there is a certain level of international embarrassment the saudis failure to to crush the movement in yemen and that's what's really behind this well the vote was important and at least pushing back the total and overwhelming u.s. support for saudi arabia's criminal war against yemen it's a war that would not one day of it would be possible without u.s. support naval blockade air refueling for years it's been four years of disaster for the people of yemen. nato has agreed a package of measures to step up its efforts in the black sea and counter russia in
5:14 am
the region with more surveillance and exercises promised that's according to the alliance and secretary general speaking at nato seventieth anniversary celebrations so we are stepping up their efforts. to see we just agreed with the black sea region we just agreed a package with more civilians exercises on old issues which we. strongly believe or relevant for the black sea region and of course all the working with all partners georgia and ukraine nato has branded russia a global threat with the end stoltenberg saying the country's made the world a more dangerous place u.s. secretary of state mike pompei or expressed a similar attitude. but him or putin harbors dark dreams of imperialism he wants to split our alliance and weaken our democratic result still russian aggression russia's attacks on western democracies and in the context of russian efforts all
5:15 am
around the world if russia did not exist it would be necessary to invent russia just to keep nato going that's the impression that you get from the summit and the anniversary celebrations that just took place in washington d.c. what worries them seems to be russia's presence anywhere russian efforts all around the world whether that's efforts in ukraine. russians continued. in activity in syria talked about it in venezuela talked about what they did in the save as of em's they want them out in each case we are doing our best collectively to respond in the case of venezuela the united states says it's responses being prepared as well and what doesn't worry them is their own presence at russia's borders really why would russia be nervous about such moves nato is adamant to present itself as purely a defensive bloc quickly forgetting the havoc it regularly creates around the world .
5:16 am
but even with nato as number one enemy so clearly pronounced there is still kind of a lack of unity within the block the loudest retort seems to be coming from turkey we just don't close in on somebody to join you to join nato his demand for turkey to abandon a deal is already been completed shares disrespect for terrorists over its. the thing is that that's how nato second biggest members seem to respond to washington's ultimatum turkey must choose. does it want to remain a critical partner the most successful military alliance in the history of the
5:17 am
world. we're doesn't want to risk the security of the partnership. by making reckless decisions that undermine our line and even mr stoltenberg was somewhat disconcerted by this us or them rhetoric it is a national decision. for each other to decide on determined capabilities actually from washington's point of view it's not just russia that nato member countries shouldn't be purchasing from china is also dangerous for the risks associated with the installation of chinese technology and systems related to security there is undoubtedly the risk and every sovereign nation that will make its own decision and then the united states will make its decision so it sounds like friends of the united states are free to trade with the united states alone beyond the u.s. not trading or blocking us corporations from trading with other countries is very conscious and energetic attempt that's carried out by the u.s.
5:18 am
by the state department and the treasury department prevent other countries from trading with those countries that have been targeted and we see this in regard to iran we see sanctions against russia cuba venezuela north korea sanctions against china many many countries in the world are sanctioned to one degree or another in order to block certain kinds of trade and normal economic relationships what are considered today normal economic relationships in again the interest of a strategy of global domination. france is trying to get tough on fake news with president emanuel micron pushing through a new note to battle misinformation however it seems some social media giants are confused over just how to implement it as silent in penske reports. ahead of the e.u. elections the french government information service or g.i.'s launched a campaign aimed at boosting voter registration but twitter found that the we
5:19 am
thought campaign is in violation of france's own anti fake news law and through an accident and the storm broke twitter his actions were called out all day. due to does not know how to do this at this time and has therefore decided to have a completely extreme policy cutting and is supposedly a political campaign they were slammed as illegal i thought it was an april fool's joke to do blocks public complaint for voter registration so as not to respect the un to fake news transparency rules appalling and illegal too it is priority should be to fight content glorifying terrorism not campaigns to register on electoral rolls of a democratic republic. after a lot of pressure twitter quickly relented it after numerous discussions we have decided to allow ads encouraging electoral put suspicion but such burns don't

always end on a high note the social media platform is known for banning and suspending accounts often without reason including the use it considers russian bought even movie accounts have been suspended for no obvious reason take the pro-life film on planned off the raking in six million dollars at the box office on opening weekend it found its twitter account was banned go it was late reinstated mysteriously around one hundred fifty thousand followers were dropped and it doesn't stop from the left to the right of politics twitter often acts as the judge and the jury so enraged to users that many are leaving the platform altogether the problems become so embarrassing to twitter that it's now going to stop and none saying how many uses it keeps using twitter may have appeased the french government for now but all

hundred forty six lives. with the release of the preliminary report of the ethiopian airlines flight three zero two accident investigation it's apparent that in both flights the maneuvering characteristics augmentation system known as m. cas activated in response to erroneous angle of attack information it's our responsibility to eliminate this risk we own it and we know how to do it. as a safety feature the boeing seven three seven max features a new type of anti storing defiance and the c. explained that in both tragedies this reacted to incorrect data causing the noses of the planes to be forced down when the pilots were trying to gain altitude we heard from a commercial airplane pilot keith of he says that pilots should always be able to override commands from a plane's or tomato system the system repeatedly kicked in and the pilots were forced to fight against it that is as you say
5:24 am
a terrifying concept we should always be able to override any electronic system software system protection system on the airplane that stability augmentation system was from the angle attacks answers the question that i would ask is why was it feeding that information to the system is there something wrong with the angle of attack sensors the way they were installed the way they were connected to the aircraft systems was their manufacturing defect i think those sensors were not manufactured by boeing but perhaps by a third party supplier but i think everybody is focusing on the software that caused the nose down motion when i think the initial question should be why is it giving bad information. the u.n. security council will be convening on friday to discuss the latest military escalation in libya u.n. secretary general on ten yucatan is now in tripoli and gave
